That was our clip, which somebody posted on YouTube without our knowledge. We've had better quality copies on our Christmas pages since 2006.

Each year, November through December, we include holiday ads on our site. Norelco Santa is always the most popular.

In 2010, we found the ad you mention. We think it was the first time Norelco Santa appeared on TV (date unknown). The copy we have is only seconds long and includes the words you posted here, along with the animated Santa, in black-and-white. It's only a partial copy, but is the only copy we ever seen.

A medley of Norelco Santa ads is on our site, from November through December only.

Those are fond memories indeed. Did I miss the site address?

The Christmas page(s) aren't there now, but they will be in November. Here is the placeholder:

The "Noelco" medley is an annual highlight and 2012 will be no exception.

Thanks, I had not seen that commercial in years. The voiceover sounds like Art Linkletter. And the 1959 Plymouth commercial reminded me that my family had the 59 station wagon model. Yes, the wagon had tail fins so if you sat in the far back seat, your view out the side window was blocked. Push button automatic transmission too. We drove it to the 64 worlds fair. But I need to get back to the present, 1974.
